Florence Stevens, fifty-two year resident of Del Mar, died in her home on November 17, 2012, at the age of 97. When her husband, Bob, got a job at Nonlinear Systems in 1960, Florence and her family moved to Del Mar where they rented a home for a year on Stratford Court before moving up the hill to Sea View.

A lifelong peace activist, Florence began the Del Mar chapter of Turn Towards Peace which hosted two Hiroshima bombing survivors at a well attended public meeting held on the grounds of the old Del Mar Hotel, led local anti-Vietnam war movements, and served as a McGovern delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1972. In more recent years she served as a board member and volunteer for Del Mar Community Connections.
